Shoes can be bought at Lozano, one of the oldest shoe´s shop in Las Palmas, I met the owner 40 years ago, now he can... More

This is a big park and heart of El Puerto neighborhood in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. This is the place where many of the festivals and events are held. It had a recently a huge "facelift" and looks very good now. Visit a cafe or a bar whilst You are walking and enjoy the good weather and sunshine.

There are several nice areas with benches to sit and enjoy the scenery. On sundays there is a market,providing clothes, household items, souveniers, and such. It's nice to... More

The park is a great meeting place because it is a central bus stop and there are many bars and restaurants. Great to sit and have a drink or a meal. We enjoyed watching the EuroCup games with everyone. You can walk around and watch the older gentlemen play anything from domino's to chess and checkers.

Across the way is a tourist office with lots of information. If one comes by ship it is the first place one comes to.It... More

Let's get one thing perfectly clear. This is NOT a park with grass and a kids playground (as some Brits seem to expect!). It is a tiled park in the broader sense of the word with beautiful flower beds, trees and shrubs in a good central location close to the port and within easy distance of Las Canteras beach. The...
